Zillions and Zillions
One of my new favorite sites, View from a Loft, reports on the signage at Carnitas Michocan which reads "Over 5 Zillion sold". I don't doubt it, those are some fine tacos, although by this math I would think King Taco has sold over 4 Gajillion by now.

Pink Taco to Open in Century City
Eater LA clues us into something pretty hilarious-- Pink Taco, a gussied-up Mexican resto from the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas is coming to the Century City Mall. Owner Harry Morton had this to say "The building will be pink and more risque in the decor. It's going to be a little rawer. It's a little funkier. We really focused on staying true to the East LA vibe." Apparently the East LA vibe is now brought to you in a pink theme restaurant in the Century City Mall with $10 tacos and Cadillac Margaritas.

NYC Taco Truck Mania
The New York Times, like every other media outlet worth its salt is interested in taco culture. Their most recent foray into the taco lifestyle is a profile of an NYC taco truck that operates up on 96th st. New York's taco writers leave a lot to be desired, as soon as our New York edition launches, we'll help steer them in the right direction.
